CEPS is pleased to announce a new group offering facilitated by Ellen McSweeney (LGSW, RYT):
WHAT: Yoga and Grief Therapy Group
WHEN: July 18-August 8; four consecutive Thursdays from 6-8 pm
WHERE: Center for Effective Psychological Services, 1313 L Street NW Suite 140, 20005
WHO: This group is open to anyone presently grieving a death-related loss
REGISTER: Space is limited and pre-registration is required. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to register, or with questions.
Grief can profoundly affect the mind, body, and spirit. This 4-week small group program will offer yoga, meditation, reflection, and discussion as tools for moving through grief. With the support of individuals who have experienced loss, participants will learn how mind-body practice can support their self-care and assist with the work of grieving.
Whether your loss is recent or took place years ago, you are welcome to join us. All movement/yoga will be gentle, and can be practiced in a chair if desired.
